Confusing when printing in a layout,
I wanted to print my drawing in A4 with a scale of 1:500 knowing that my drawing unit is in meter.
In my case, what should I fill in the “layout printer scale” and “viewport scale” in order to print my drawing in A4 with a scale of 1:500.
Please have a look on the screenshots below. The dwg file is attached.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Jamal, what you did when you changed the plot scals was to make the paper size 10 time bigger (or smaller i dont remember which). so what you need to do is leave the plot scale at 1:1 for a full size sheet, and change your viewport scale to 1:500.
Assuming your viewport is sized for the A4 sheet and the viewport is zoomed to 1:500, your units in the scale box should be 1:1. So check your viewport size, check the zoom level in the viewport (click inside the viewport, type zoom, enter 1/500xp, then lock the viewport).
I think that should do it.
Many thanks guys for the help,
Sounds not to work with me!
But what I get is big texts!
How can I manage this issue? The dwg file is attached in my previous post.
One problem that you might be having is that because of your scale, the dynamic text is going to get very large. I still think you mgiht have something messed up; in the plot window, everthing should be 1 (scale, mm, and units)
Sorry, I wasn't able to open your cad file and check it out, I am running 2012.
